Win Free Tix To The Philadelphia Orchestra This Friday!

Get ’em when they’re young and they’re yours for life: this Friday, July 29, The Philadelphia Orchestra presents The Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra at SPAC in Saratoga Springs, conducted by Charles Dutoit and narrated by Saratoga Springs native David Hyde Pierce. It’s an exciting, fun and child-friendly way to introduce your young (and not-so-young) loved ones to the sonic magic that the world-class Philadelphia Orchestra brings to SPAC every summer.

Also on the bill are Stravinsky’s beloved Song of the Nightengale and Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7. Tickets range from $20.00 – $72.50. The concert starts at 8pm, but for an additional $5, you can attend a 30-minute pre-performance talk by violinist Davyd Booth in the Hall of Springs Gold Room at 7pm.

The evening kicks off at 6pm with strolling magicians, FREE Stewart’s ice cream, free balloon animals, free photo magnets, chalk contests, family games and more. And, at 7pm, there’s a free children’s workshop on the lawn led by principal musicians from the Philadelphia Orchestra.

Heeeeey, we’ve got a pair of lawn tickets to give away to this performance to a lucky Nippertown reader! To enter the contest, just post a comment below. Please leave your email address, too. We won’t publish it, but we’ll use it to contact you if you win. The winners will be selected at random and notified on Friday morning. Good luck! Congratulations, Frank Angelo!

    Wonderful way to introduce and encourage the orchestra to young people. They are the future supporters of the arts.

    My wife’s 9 months pregnant, does the not-born-yet baby count as a young person? :-)
